What is the history of the mortar board for graduation ceremonies?
Why do high school and college graduates wear a mortar board hat?
It goes back to medieval times, when caps of particular shapes and colors were signs of royalty and clergy. At the time, universities were primarily for clerics. As academic degrees developed, certain caps became associated with masters degrees, and it grew from there. The full history can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mortarboard.
